Back down memory lane
The new deal announced in October of 2018 sparked a huge excitement in fans as it was taking them down memory lane.
Adidas were the Arsenal kit supplier from 1986-1994. The home kit features a red torso, white and red sleeves with the classic three stripes on the shoulders being white in colour.
The collar of the home kit features a red and white combo which pays homage to the home kits worn at the end of the 1980’s.
The away kit visits the past with a corn yellow colour which is a classic favourite among the Arsenal fans.
We can almost picture the classic JVC sponsored kit with the new design of the away kit. A series of faded blue stripes are on the kit too with the iconic stripes on the shoulder being navy blue.
The wait will have to be a bit longer in-order to purchase the kits. The 5 year deal between Puma and Adidas will come to an end on June 30th.
Rumors claim that Arsenal will receive double the amount from what they were earning from Puma. Arsenal are now joint 2nd with Chelsea in terms of earnings as they will both receive £60m annually. Chelsea signed a 15-year deal with Nike from 2017-32. Manchester United still lead the earnings and look to stay there as their deal with Adidas is worth £75m.
